While reading the Press Democrat this morning I came across an article about the Sonoma County Food Forum:
Bringing together more than 300 of Sonoma’s food producers, farmers, agricultural policy makers and local politicos, the inaugural Sonoma County Food Forum, held February 24, 2011, was a day-long gathering to hash out broad-reaching issues facing the local food system. Co-hosted by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, the University of California Cooperative Extension, Sonoma County Department of Health Services and Sonoma County Food System Alliance, it was an unlikely mix of suits and ties rubbing shoulders with muddy workbooks and jeans.Interesting stuff.. I've never been much of a hippie about my food, but recently I have definitely been paying more attention to the fuel I put in my body. After all, you are what you eat right? The article does a good job breaking down the issues facing Sonoma County's local food system and what the community is doing to address them.
Please take a moment to read the article. What do y'all think?
Do you care where your food is coming from?
Who wants a McDouble?
